GIZ

GIZ 01With the Forests and Climate Change Programme (FORCLIME), Germany supports Indonesia's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the forestry sector, to conserve forest biodiversity, and to implement sustainable forest management.

An agreement between FORECLIME and TFF was signed in May, 2014, to conduct a comparative study of logging as conventionally carried out in Indonesia and a reduced impact logging (RIL) management regime where the principles and practices of reduced impact logging have been applied.

The study sought to influence practices in the RIL study area in order to evaluate key metrics such as machine productivity, soil disturbance, utilization of main stem volume, and retention of biomass. Of particular interest to GIZ in the context of the FORCLIME program was the explicit objective of “estimating the potential reduction of carbon emissions in a timber concession by implementing RIL as a planning and operational concept”.
